Home again in Indiana

Three states – three time zones – six days.
It was a rush; but what a great time!

Last week I had the opportunity to travel to Anaheim, CA for the first time to meet with students attending the SHPE (Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers) College fair. It was great having four of our top Purdue SHPE students join me in talking to future engineering students and answering questions about Purdue, Engineering and Student life.

While in California I had the opportunity to see Newport Beach, Crystal Cove, and had dinner at the Beachcomber on Crystal Cove (a must do if you are ever in southern CA).

After the college fair I hopped on a plane and headed to Colorful Colorado where during some downtime I had the opportunity to visit with family and friends over the weekend before heading to West Middle School (part of Cherry Creek Schools) in Greenwood Village, CO (Denver area) on Monday, October 31st.

I’m not sure if sitting through a class on “Engineering is Everywhere” was a Trick or Treat for the 360 8th grade Science students, but they all seemed to enjoy learning more about using Math and Science to change the world.
